Swedish research on cold mix asphalt
First publishedon www.AggBusiness.com
Researchers at the Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI) say they have shown that using cold mix asphalt concrete instead of traditional warm mix asphalt concrete is an effective way of reducing environmental impact.
The cold mix asphalt technique requires less energy and reduces emissions of greenhouse gases.
Safwat Said, research leader at VTI, says that interest in cold mix asphalt has grown in recent years due to an increased interest in reducing greenhouse gases and optimising energy efficiency.
